Sunny cottage situated on the shore of the beautiful tidal Waimea Inlet. Fabulous mountain and inlet views. Great for day trips to Abel Tasman Park or Nelson City. Private and peaceful, yet only 5 minutes drive to shops and cafes in Mapua village.
Karaka is a 2 bedroom self-contained cottage situated on the shore of the beautiful tidal Waimea Inlet.
The stylishly renovated 1950’s apple picker's cottage sleeps 4 people. It has an open-plan living space with large windows, wonderful views, and a fully-equipped kitchen. The master bedroom has a king size bed, the second bedroom has two single beds. The bathroom has a large tiled shower, and opens to a deck with an outdoor bath. The bath is beautiful in the morning with the sun streaming through the trees, amazing on a clear night looking at the stars.
There are places to sit outside and catch the sunshine whatever time of day. A large covered verandah and a private garden lead to the estuary shore.
The cottage is perfectly equipped for the simple pleasures of a bach holiday with good books, board games, barbecue, hammock, and endless views to gaze at. On a full tide you can explore the quiet inlet by kayak or paddle board. The tide comes in and out twice a day so the water and views are constantly changing. The size of the tides also vary according to the moon and there are timetables in the cottages for the best times to kayak and paddle board.
The cottage has a woodburner and is very cosy in winter. There is good cellphone coverage and free Wifi.

We are a family of 3 living on a small organic waterfront property (2 Ha) on the Waimea Inlet near Mapua. Our place is a mixture of fruit trees, vegetable garden, chickens and a small vineyard. We love to travel, and have spent many years living overseas. We have a constant flow of people from all over the world staying here which we love.... as well as guests in the cottages we have wwoofers here most of the year (willing workers on organic farms) .
